Hi everyone, i think i have been scammed by AOseeds.

Placed an order over 20 days ago, they told me they are working on a way to send me the seeds i ordered.

I smell a scam, paid a lot of money for the shipping and nothing...i think i have been ripped off.

Worse thing is i ordered the seeds for a friend of mine, i was simply trying to help him out.

Has anyone ordered from these idiots before?

Anyway hell of a first post i know but i came here to find a good source for knowledge and also for seeds.

I should have come here before hand but only found out about this place now.

Thanks for having me.

I'm from austalia and seems very hard to get seeds here now, used to go through another company but they no longer ship here. : (

IMO, any reputable seller would not take your money until they had a way to ship to your country.

Hi thanks for the reply.
It;s strange they would say the order has been shipped..and then 20 days later and only after i emailed them they told me it hasn't been shipped.

No offer of a refund or anything...almost a month wasted and the shipping was almost $100USD..so hopefully i haven't been scammed...smells like one though.

If this company comes through i will update but if not I'll make a post for people to avoid them so the same thing doesn't happen to them.

Ha ha it sure does. :)

Well AO SEEDS lied....DHL are shipping express all over the world and they said DHL were not shipping outside of europe..i just checked with them.

So no one should be placing seed orders with AO SEEDS...just a friendly warning amigos.

I'll try make a post about them..but i am so far from impressed it's not funny.

@Arkansas1 I've ordered from Oaseeds several times. (I've never heard of AO Seeds). If Oaseeds is the company you placed your order with, I've had differing experiences depending on whether I paid for the expensive rush shipping or just their normal shipping ... When I paid for the premium shipping option, my seeds always arrived within a week. When I paid for their normal shipping option, I finally got my order after 2 months. They also gave me a refund for my entire order because it took too long. That was my experience with them ... if it's the same company, it can be slow to get the process fixed but they eventually will make it right. This is there website link: https://oaseeds.com/en/

If you actually ordered from a company called AO seeds, I know nothing of them and kindly disregard my post.

P.S. I'm in the USA so I know nothing about getting seeds into Australia

I order my seeds from seedsman twice and both times was just over two weeks to get here with normal shipping and so far I’ve had great experiences. Not sure if they ship to you but they are in the UK so I’d check them out. Best of luck✌🏼

Ah i had my spelling wrong apologies.

Yep they are Oaseeds.

Despite their website saying they ship worldwide they wont send to me.
First they said it was about DHL...now their telling me seed shipments are sensitive to being sent outside of the EU...sensitive my goodness.

So because of them my friend has lost almost a month, anyway i have requested a refund from them, their emails are really annoying.

Best of luck…I don’t know if they ship to Australia, but The Choice Seed Bank has always shipped and I’ve always received their stuff. Past several years.
